When & Where

SRCCON 2019 takes place July 11 & 12 at the McNamara Alumni Center on the University of Minnesota campus in Minneapolis. You can also check out how our schedule works.

SRCCON attendees tend to arrive on Wednesday and leave Friday evening or Saturday, depending on how the flight times work out. Our general conference schedule will look like this:

Wednesday: Evening meetup for session facilitators, starting around 6pm.

Thursday: Registration in the morning, with conference programming from about 9am to 6pm, followed by an evening full of informal activities at the venue.

Friday: Conference programming from about 9am to 6pm.


We have reserved a block of rooms at the Courtyard Minneapolis Downtown at a base rate of $169 per night. To get the conference rate, please call 877-699-3216 and ask for the SRCCON rate, or use our dedicated booking link. There is a complimentary shuttle from the conference hotel to the McNamara Alumni Center venue.

The reserved block of rooms will be available until June 18 or all rooms are booked, whichever happens first—booking early is always at good idea!

Food, Evenings, and More

We want you to be happy and well-fed at SRCCON, so we provide lots of snacks and lunch on both days, as well as a delicious dinner Thursday night. We’ll also have tea, coffee, and snacks—healthy and sugary—throughout the day, so stick around and enjoy the company of your fellow attendees.

We’ll have a slate of activities on Thursday evening, and you can learn more about the many ways to participate in SRCCON, before, during, and after the event!
